What is the SOUPerBowl?
Friendship Center partners with the CCSU Ceramics Department and E.C. Goodwin Technical High School in an Empty Bowl Event to raise awareness of hunger and poverty in the community and elsewhere. All the proceeds from this event go to our Community Soup Kitchen that feeds approximately 250 people daily. They named it “The SOUPer Bowl” to coincide with the actual Super Bowl, the annual championship game of the National Football League. They hold theirs on the Thursday before the big game on Sunday.

What are they asking for?
They are looking for area restaurants or groups to participate by donating one or more variations of soup, chili or chowder to be served inside one of hundreds of beautifully handcrafted ceramic bowls donated by the CCSU ceramics department. The bowls are purchased as entrance to the event and attendees are able to enjoy a simple meal by sampling the soups/chili/chowders provided in a community setting with others! The guest then keeps the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. E.C. Goodwin culinary students will be serving. But that’s not all! A friendly competition where a guest panel of distinguished judges will be declaring and presenting awards for the various winners of “best soup/chili/chowder” (restaurants/organization/groups must apply to be a part of contest)

They are also looking for Sponsorships. Levels include:
$100 — Red Ribbon Sponsor - recognition at event $250 — Blue Ribbon Sponsor - recognition at event + social media recognition $500 —Bronze Ladle Sponsor - recognition at event + social media recognition + 4 event tickets $750 — Silver Ladle Sponsor - recognition at event + social media recognition + 6 event tickets $1000 — Gold Ladle Sponsor recognition at event + social media recognition and video interview + 8 event tickets $2500 – Title Sponsor – Title recognition at event + Title social media recognition and video interview + 10 event tickets

When is this event happening?
SOUPer Bowl will take place on Thursday, January 30th, 2020 at EC Goodwin Technical High School from 4:30pm to 7pm.

What is in it for you?
It is a great opportunity to spotlight your establishment, have a friendly competition with other area restaurants, and connect with your community and prospective customers. Last year we had over 400 people in attendance.
